Setup and configuration

This plug-in requires Elvis server version 2.6.1 or higher.

Step 1: enable access to your server

Make sure your Elvis server is accessible from the Internet.

Step 2: setup a guest user

Set up a guest user with restricted permissions.

Step 3: configure permissions for the 'public' field

Login to Elvis as administrator and go to System > Manage Permissions.

Make sure that users that will be using the WordPress plug-in have view and edit permission on the 'public' field, so they will be able to set the value of the field public to true.

Note: The public guest user should only have view permission 'public' field, do not grant the guest user edit permission.

Once installed and activated, configure your server URL and specify the username and password of the 'public' guest user that you have created in Elvis.
